With traditional eLearning you get lots and lots of information. Maybe a few interactive activities. Then there are a bunch of questions at the end. This type of eLearning is essentially replicating the teaching process.
Allara Learning's interactive courses aim to replicate the learning process. This process helps create more engaging and effective courses - not just a pass mark. Learners are put into an interactive environment where they can:
- find information
- make decisions
- think critically
- get feedback as they move along
